and marketed by Edge Products, 1080 South Depot Drive, Ogden, UT 94404, has been
found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control systems
and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for
2007 model year Dodge trucks equipped with a 5.7L engine.

The Evolution is a hand held programmer designed to reprogram the FLASH memory
chip located in the vehicle's ECU module. The Evolution has four main stages of

download OEM calibration updates, non errlission related upgrades, and patches or fixes
in the firmware. Evolution data files cannot be modified by the end user.

will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those subrr~ittedby
the device manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Evolution, as exempt by the
Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle's pollution
control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Evolution advertised, offered for sale, sold
with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate
purchaser.

Marketing of the Evolution using any identification other than that shown in this Executive
Order or marketing of the Evolution for an application other than those listed in this
Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opir~ionas to the effect the use of the

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emission test data generated on a
2007 model year 5.7L Dodge Ram, certified to the Low Emission Vehicle II Low
Emission Vehicle (LEV II LEV) emission standards and modified with the Evolution. Test


results showed that emission levels, with the Evolution Extreme (level 4) program
installed, met the applicable emission standards when tested using the Cold-Start
CVS-75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test
Procedure (SFTP US06) test cycle. Examination of the OBD II system showed the
Evolution did not affect OBD II system operation. Results from errlissions testing
conducted at Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc., located in Ontario,
California, are shown below (in grams per mile with deterioration factors applied).
